KARACHI: Rangers arrested at least 13 suspects during a search operation in the Surjani Town area of Karachi on Saturday and sealed a factory producing local bombs, reported Express News.

Security personnel recovered as much as 25 kilogrammes of explosives and a huge cache of arms and ammunition from the suspects. Five locally-made bombs embedded in cricket balls were also recovered.

Rangers said that the factory was located with the help of sniffer dogs.
